It was delightful to see some of the children in Cordillo having fun on the tennis courts owned by the Town of Hilton Head Island. The children were making good use of a sunny day that was perfect for being outdoors. They had three used rackets and a few tennis balls that had seen better days. They were playing round robin and coaching each other as if they had mastered all the basic skills. They were indeed having fun. The tennis court is the only facility these children have for sports and physical activities.
What if these tennis courts, which are dilapidated and worn out, were modernized? What if these kids had proper equipment and a coach to teach them how to play tennis? The potential is quite clear.
